Office of Teaching, Learning and Schools (OTLS)

OTLS creates the conditions necessary for every student to experience academic excellence through the development and implementation of professional learning, comprehensive and coordinated programs and services, and a focus on learning, accountability, and results.

Focus Goals

All offices within Teaching, Learning and Schools will anchor and operationalize their work through the lens of the MCPS Strategic Priorities. These priorities are reflected in the OneOTLS focus goals, which will serve to streamline our collective efforts as we align our work collaboratively across Special Education (SE), Student and Family Support and Engagement (SFSE), Curriculum and Instructional Programs (CIP), and School Support and Improvement (SSI).
